Belfast South : week 2

Banker's Club, Malone Road

UCU Members will be familiar with the organisation of the tournament following on from earlier Fisherwick Flexible Tournaments. It is effectively an Autumn/Winter version of the Summer Tournament. Indeed with the change of club venue to the Banker's Club on the Malone Road, the competition conveniently echoes this years summer tournament.

There are more details of the tournament rules on the Club's own website and the club's news section.

Two rounds of the flexible tournament have been completed to date with a total of 18 entries so far. Belfast South players predominate but Ballynafeigh, Shorts and Fisherwick are also represented. Entries from other clubs would be greatly welcomed.

Current competition standings are available in the Results Service with details of who played who in each week.

So far the results have produced few shocks. A notable one was Stewart McConaghy's win over Ray Devenney. As an encouragement to all players the organisers have agreed to award best games prizes in addition to the existing prize fund and to publish them on local websites.
